that nobody should be allowed to run for president of the united states. amend the u.s. constitution so you couldn't run unless you had significant private sector experience, except for paul ryan who he picked to be his vice presidential nominee. do you think that distance between ryan and romney, ed, is the most important thing? most important opening tonight for joe biden? >> well, in your opening you talked about how they're very much the same. washingtonites. but the way they got there is a lot different. ryan's path was one of privilege. joe biden's was one of true middle class. i think tonight's debate is as much about how liberals are going to feel when it's over with, as paralleled to how they felt last week, so let down. i was in ohio. that's all they could talk about. i was in florida. that's all they could talk about. this tonight is about a motion. if democrats want to take away from tonight's debate that they feel a lot better about their case to the american people. and that was the shortcoming of the president last week. there were lies that were flying across the table last

, but no one seriously thinks any u.s. president can make that happen, just by sort of cracking down on china. so when you ask the romney campaign to back up the claim of 12 million jobs over four years, it turns out what they really mean is 7 million jobs over ten years of an economy that is already at full unemployment when we start, which our economy will not be, plus 3 million jobs over eight years, which have nothing to do with any particular policies that romney is proposing, and 2 million jobs if businesses in china suddenly became very respectful of u.s. intellectual property laws. which is to say, as has become sadly common with the romney campaign, that whatever you think of their actual policy ideas, the numbers are giving us to sell them don't add up or even really come anywhere close to it. >> ezra, just to be clear on the energy numbers, specifically, so that citigroup study, that the romney campaign is citing says not over four years, but over eight years, we could come up with three-point something million jobs, but that's for the obama policies. hasn't romney pledged to revok

previous position that should he become president, all u.s. troops will be pulled out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. this is new. >> we're going to be finished by 2014 and when i'm president we'll make sure we bring our troops out by the end of 2014. >> we're going to be finished by 2014. this is a new policy for mitt romney unveiled in the last debate before the presidential election. in february mr. romney said, the biggest mistakes president obama has made in afghanistan were, one, announcing the specific date we would withdraw. that was in february. in january he said, this president has done an extraordinary thing. he announced the date of our withdraw. that was wrong. in june he said, we shouldn't adhere to a timetable. this past summer he said, i don't think you set hard and fast deadline. that was the mitt romney before tonight's debate started. now you've got a new one. if this war matters to you, you've got a presidential candidate on your hands who has a brand-new position 15 days before the election. sometime you get real, live actual news out of these presidential de

, you make profits overseas, you don't have to pay u.s. taxes. of course if you're a small business or a big business starting up here, you've got to pay even the reduced rate that governor romney is talking about. and it's estimated that that will create 800,000 new jobs. the problem is they'll be in china. or india. or germany. that's not the way we're going to create jobs here. the way we're going to create jobs here is not just to change our tax code, but also to double our exports. we are on pace to double our exports, that's creating tens and thousands of jobs all across the country. that's why we kept pushing trade deals but trade deals that make sure american workers and businesses are getting a good deal. governor romney talked about china, as i already indicated. in the private sector, governor romney's company invested in what were called pioneers of outsourcing. that's not my phrase. that's what reporters called it. and as far as currency manipulation, the currency has actually gone up 11% since i've been president because we have pushed them hard. and we have put pressu

policies. oil, weak, global commodities. when you weaken the u.s. dollar year after year. when you go through the deflation, inflation of the money supply, the u.s. dollar goes down. gasoline goes up. wheat goes up. clothing goes up. we haven't seen inflation impact society at large, families are being hurt by this. families that need to pay for that extra meal at home. i think it's been very disappointing to the american people. >> i want to get to the detailed side of the romney tax plan that he's not willing to discuss, which is the deductions. he says he wants to cut rates and eliminate deductions that fill in the funding hole. >> that i would suggest? >> yes. >> oh, sure. i don't think it's right that you can have a million dollar mortgage and get the same deduction as someone with a 200,000, 300,000, $400,000 mortgage. you can cap the amount of the mortgage reduction. cap it at $1.1 million. >> yes. >> what should it be? >> i would say in the neighborhood of 600,000. >> what about the suggestion from the governor that perhaps we should just have a bucket, a deduction of $25,000.
